Welcome to the Kid's Page


The Highland Street Foundation's 'Free Fun Fridays' offers visitors no-cost admission to many of the most treasured cultural venues in Massachusetts.

This program was created to increase access and enrichment opportunities for children and families throughout Massachusetts during the summer months.  Every Friday, from the end of June through the end of August, multiple sites are open for free.  We reach out to schools, veterans groups, libraries, seniors centers, and many other community organizations to ensure that everyone knows that they are also welcome.
